This dark and damp Tuesday morning began with me realizing that I forgot to take a muffin out of the freezer to eat, so I came up with another alternative.
This yogurty bowl contained:
- 1/2 cup of mostly 2% plain Greek yogurt (a little of which was nonfat because I ran out of 2%)
- 3/4 cup Ancient Grains Cereal
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 1 tbsp unsweetened coconut
- Sliced strawberries
Even in my rush to eat breakfast I had time to enjoy my newly in-season strawberries! I love winter produce, but one can only subsist on butternut squash and brussels sprouts for so long. I need some berries in my life!
Mid-morning I had some chocolate, fig, and almond bites.
These were intended to be my pre-workout snack, but ten minutes before I planned to leave for the gym my tummy started growling. So, I ate half a banana I had packed for the afternoon (unpictured) and then took off.
I had a really awesome spin class today. I won’t lie, I was a little worried about my bruised foot. It had been bothering me all day. I decided I would go to class, and if my foot started to hurt, I would stop. When I put my sneakers on, things started feeling a lot better, which was a good sign! I guess my running shoes really do provide that much support (high heels, on the other hand, do not). Class was a hot, shweaty mess, and I loved every minute of it. Lots of intense hills and sprints. This teacher does a lot of core work, where we try to climb/sprint/both simultaneously without moving our upper body/taking one hand off the bike. It’s a real challenge. I feel very accomplished afterwards! It was really hot in the gym today. Even after my shower I was still sweating! I couldn’t wait to come back to the office and dig into this baby…
Just what I needed! Around 4 I had the other half of the banana and walnuts.
In other news, I paid my seat deposit for law school today. I’ve decided to go to American University, part-time. I’m both excited and really scared of this new adventure. Will I survive? Will work understand when I can’t stay late? Will Pete eat McDonalds every night if I’m not there to cook for him? So many questions are swimming through my head. All I can do right now is trust that it will all turn out well, and know that I made the right decision…
Back tonight after dinner and BIGGEST LOSER! I’m obsessed.
